The Winnipeg Humane Society has called out to the Dark Side to help raise funds for its upcoming 1001 Donations Radio and Telethon.
Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and bounty hunters will invade the WHS on Sunday, March 20. The 501st Legion, an imperial Star Wars costuming club, will lend their look to the animal shelter in an effort to boost donations.
“The bad guys will do some good for The WHS at the 1001 Donations Radio and Telethon,” said WHS event manager Jill Voth.
“It’s going to be a great opportunity for Stars Wars fans to get up close and personal with characters from the Star Wars series and see how detailed the costumes are.”
The event will also be streamed live online from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will be produced by Red River College’s Creative Communications students.
